My Sheikh! As-Salaam `Alaykum! In a discussion with my non-Muslim friend, he raised a very important point which I could not answer. He asked: “If the Qur’an is the final testament of God, then it should include perfect guidance.” I nodded, yes. He continued: “Does the Qur’an contain reference to modern scientific discoveries?” Please help! Jazakum Allah Khairan!
As-Salamu `Alaykum. If some one had an oath on Qur’an and broke his oath, how can he make his Kaffarah?
As-Salamu `alaykum. What is the reality of the mathematical code 19 which they say it proves that the QUR’AN is a miracle?
Dear scholar, as-Salamu `alaykum! Could you explain why surat At-Tawbah does not start with the Basmallah ?
Dear scholars, Living in a world of theories and various explanations of every field of human activity, one may ask: “Where is Islam in all this?” I cannot find anything about the Qur’anic approach to history. What does Islam have to say on history? What is the concept of history in the Qur’an?
Dear Muslim scholars, As-Salamu `Alaykum wa Rahmatu Allah wa Barakatuh. Is covering the `Awrah necessary when one is reading the Glorious Qur’an. Jazakum Allah khayran.
As-Salamu `Alaykum. Are there words of non-Arabic origin in the Qur’an? Can you tell me which words? I would be very thankfully for your help and may Allah give you reward for it!
As-Salamu `alaykum. Does one need to have wudu' in order to read or handle a book containing a couple of surahs such as surat Yasin? Is this the same as one who handles the Qur’an?
Some people are trying to spread words against Qur'an. They say, "Muslims don't have the same Qur'an as was at the time of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him)." They say, "Muslims have lost some parts of the Qur'an." Although they don't call themselves Shi`ah who believe, on the basis of a Hadith, that "There were originally 40 Juz' (parts) in the Qur'an, but now we are left with only 30 Juz'."; yet they believe the same. Before I could ask you questions, my view is that whoever says that some part of the Qur'an has been lost, says directly or indirectly that "Allah is lying" in Qur'an, when He says: "We, have without doubt sent down the Message and We Assuredly Guard it." (Al-Hijr: 9) "It is for Us to Collect (Compile) it a and to Recite it." (Al-Qiyama: 17) "There is No Doubt in it." (Al-Baqara: 2) QUESTION-1: Should these people (who indirectly say Allah is lying) be called Muslims? QUESTION-2: Should we believe such a Hadith as true which says that Muslims have lost a part of the Qur'an? QUESTIONS-3: If that Hadith is in a book that is written by a Muslim scholar, should we rely on such book? QUESTION-4: Should we listen to such scholar?
Dear scholars, As-Salaam `Alaykum. I want to ask about the Hadith which states: “Who reads Surat al-Waqi`ah every night will never be poor.” Is this an authentic (Saheeh) Hadith? Jazakum Allah khayran.
I heard that Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said that in order for the Qur’an to say on the Day of Judgment that I have not abandoned it, I must have finished reading all of it at least once a month. Is that true? Also, when reading, do I have to read with tajweed or can I read normally like reading a magazine? My Arabic is poor, and reading with tajweed takes a long time. I would appreciate a brief answer.
As-Salamu `alaykum! I want to know the meaning of the disjointed letters in the Qur’an such as “Alif Lam Mim”.
The Qur'an was revealed in the form of separate verses upon Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). It was only at the time of the Caliph `Uthman Ibn `Affan (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Qur'an was collected in the order it is today. Can you please elaborate on who decided the current order of the Qur'an (I mean the order of the verses and the surahs (chapters) in the present form)? Can you also mention how it was all done? May Allah reward you for the service you are providing!
As-Salamu `alaykum. I am one of those unlucky men who did not read the Holy Qur'an. In fact, when I was young I read perhaps three surahs and after that I don't know what happened. My family is in Lahore where all my children have read the Qur'an. My question is whether I can read the Holy Qur'an in English or not. Please let me have your worthy opinion.
As-salamu `alaykum. Is it OK to recite the Qur’an without knowing the rules of tajwid? Thank you.
Dear Sheikh, As-Salamu `alaykum. Are there times in the day one should not recite Qur’an, just as there are times one should not offer optional Salah (prayer)?
Dear sir, I have a question to ask: Why didn't Allah choose to preserve the earlier messages (Torah, Gospel, etc.) the way He took upon Himself the task of preserving the accuracy and authenticity of Qur'an?
